I would love to stroll through all the posts, but there are a ton of posts. Great Astroliner! Too awesome!

I am curious about the grey and black water tanks???

This one is easier to navigate, but needs updated:

What specifically do you want to know about the tanks?

We have a 40 gal Grey Water tank, a 40 gal Black Water tank and a 30 gal Fresh Water tank. With the exception of the Fresh, the tanks were fabricated into the frame during the very early stages of the build.

One of the things about finishing a build (is it ever really finished?) is there is no longer build progress to report! Therefore, I'll resort to posting random pictures of recent trips.

Image

The cat, always trying to go camping

Image

Stopping in town for a quick break

Image

Finally, a good shot of the artwork on the Dinette table

Image

The metal art on the wall that I made while going through Chemo will always have special meaning

Image

The town of Madison Indiana through the window. We were there for the Regatta and the Gold Cup

Image

Image

Our campsite at General Butler State Park, KY.

Image

Happy Camping!

Image

Getting to see the old Gang as they went through the Parade

Image

Hanging out in the pits with my team and old friends

Image

The Gold Cup

(Oldest Motorsports Trophy in the History of our Country)

Image

The year our team won the Gold Cup

Image

My favorite shot of our boat driven by J. Michael Kelly (Drive it like you stole it Brotherman)

Image
Image

Image

Racing on the Ohio!

Image

What I do when I'm not camping
(Best of show, Three Rivers 2019)

Happy Building, Happy Camping!

Great pictures and story Michael, thanks for sharing. It feels like you have to fly those boats close to the water, not drive really, right? Those guys are not drivers, they more like bold pilots to me.

The top half of the boat is Aerodynamic. The bottom of the boat is Hydrodynamic. The less of the boat in the water the less friction and drag. So we build them to pack air underneath. Think "skipping stone..."

By the way, I'm not sure how far you are from Valley Field Quebec, but the best boat race in the world is held there.

It's always the second weekend in July. I really want to pull my camper up there sometime!

It is only 7 hours from my place, so it is doable for a weekend camping then, especially with the lightweight camper we will soon have.
